SUSTAINABILITY FUND (COUNCIL)
If you are inclined towards building renovation then you have the opportunity to access government enabled finance. Environmental Upgrade Finance is at a fixed rate which provides you with long term loans. This results in a sufficient amount of capital providence which can give way to sustainability in your business.
Refunding is supposed to be done through your local councils, over terms up to 20 years meaning that your business can have positive cash-flow within an year.
How is it distinctive from the other loans?
There are several features which make this loan distinctive from others. Firstly, it provides approximately 100% project finance which includes both, hard and soft costs. Secondly, the time period of loan is between 4-2-0 years. Moreover, repayments are supposed to be made through local council rates and they can be divided between landlords and tenants. Lastly, there is no set condition of personal or business security.
The Clean Energy Finance Corporation has invested millions to help Australia’s major banks which provide ‘energy-efficiency’ loans. These loans offer a 0.70% discount on headline rates for investing into clean-energy assets which are provided by Australia’s major banks. It is advised to get a quote from a bank offering CEFC funded energy efficiency loans to weigh the other existing business lending options.
Energy efficiency loans assist you by giving you ownership of the system along with conserving your work capital which can prove to be very convenient for you. In contrast, these loans also might result in the loss of tax deduction which is linked with the current electricity bill.
Secondly, the GST paid can be claimed in the next business activity statement. Plus, it is easy to apply for this loan with your two year plus trading history, and a large number of providers means an increase in the probability of getting better rates and packages. While we offer substantial amount of money as loans, on the other hand, no allowances are provided in the payments and are based on full invoice price including GST.
Energy efficiency loans give you the opportunity to make additional payments so that you save on the interest cost. However, as all the assets appear on the balance sheet, it reduces your chance to borrow.
Generally, it is hard to create a balance between the working capital and the projects which need to be funded. It is majorly observed that businessmen tend to overlook the prospect of generating energy and priorities less in investing in solar projects. However, we believe that paying for solar systems will deliver the greatest total revenue.
There are several benefits which come in after installing Solar systems. For instance, there is complete ownership of the system without ongoing payments or interest after the purchase. However, Solar system installation requires large capital investment which cannot be easily allocated with the alternate businesses.
Secondly, there is no involvement of a third party which proves to be beneficial for its understanding. In addition to this, there is tax depreciation of 5% p.a for 20 years as per ATO guidelines and the GST paid can be claimed in the next business activity statement. A slight setback associated with it is that the payback period extends for 3-6 years during which the cash flow of the solar project remains negative.
